Tom Kerridge's Meals from Marlow food delivery charity has launched a crowdfund campaign to allow it to continue delivering free meals to key workers and people in need.

The charity is aiming to raise a minimum of £75,000 to fund the ongoing project and possibly allow it to expand in the future.

Founded by Kerridge, Andy Agar and Chris Hughes, Meals from Marlow was created at the start of the first Coronavirus lockdown to provide support for key workers and those in need both in Marlow and surrounding towns during the pandemic.

The scheme has so far provided over 100,000 meals, by working with the NHS and many community organisations both within Marlow, High Wycombe, Slough, Maidenhead and other local areas.

As was reported last year​, it is now being formalised as a permanent charity to provide support for those in need in the region.

The money raised from the crowdfund will allow the charity to continue delivering 600 free meals per week.

In a statement on its GoFundMe page, the charity said: "We plan to continue to work closely with local organisations and charities to ensure that the meals produced find their way to those most in need, relying on our partners' experience and expertise to support our neighbours each and every week.

"But to do this we need your support."
